The main Meetings forum is designed for meetings with a firm date and location in mind, and this info should be contained in the thread title.

If you want to gauge interest or ask a more general question, please use the "Provisional/gauging interest" forum.

Once meetings have taken place, threads will be moved to the "past meets" forum rather than the Coffee Bar.

Stickies can be arranged for regular, established, meets with a set calendar of upcoming dates- please pm a mod to discuss.

No drumming up of additional interest by cross posting in other sections please, unless by prior moderator approval

My local show at Ladybank, in Fife, has just been cancelled, and it's at the end of August.... :cry:
I'd hoped being so late in the summer, it might survive.
Oh well, 2020, basically cancelled.
Can't see the NEC Resto show going ahead in early August.

Understandable really and I do not think the NEC show will go ahead either..

I'm employed by a youth charity and we have cancelled all of our local and national events until the 1st September.
Planning for events after the 1st September has been suspended but the events have not yet been cancelled, but I expect they will be for a further 1-2 months from September if not the end of the year.

All our International exchanges for the remainder of this year have been cancelled as have our offshore voyages.

When you posted the next Limes meet as the 5th July Mal I thought that seems a long way away. Now we’ll be lucky if we can make that. :roll: It’s beginning to look as though Andy is right and this year is a write off. Speaking personally I will be happier starting with small outdoor events. Social distancing is much easier at the small events. The good news is the India Yellow 95 is now ready to drive to local events although lots of finishing off jobs to do. :D

I've not cancelled the July meet yet as its still over a month away and the guidelines may change before then.
I suspect it will need to cancelled and August might just be feasible instead with social distancing not being a problem in the Limes car park, or another outdoor venue.

Large events and especially the likes of the enclosed environment of the NEC I do not think we will see until at least the end of the year if not later.

I think we may have to content ourselves with small local meets like the Limes if guidelines allow until the end of the year.
